SEX + The City character Samantha Jones' breast cancer storyline is proving really difficult for KIM CATTRALL - because she has a friend who's fighting the killer disease for real.

The actress reveals she can't get away from cancer now that she's facing a new real-life encounter with the disease.

She says, "Someone very close to me is just about to start that process, so it has been doubly painful and also very challenging because the message is, 'You do fight.'"
